It was pretty simple. I took it apart, spray painted the metal base gold (Rustoleum metallic gold), covered the table top with a throw rug I picked up at TJ Maxx for $16.99, put it back together, and called it done.
The fabric covered boxes (HomeGoods) fit perfectly underneath and are so great for added storage.
I literally just glued the brass pulls (Home Depot) to the fronts. Liquid Fusion glue is serious - works on everything - not kidding!
I love the texture, pattern, and color the rug adds to the table top.

oh and if you missed it last week - here's the floral pleated lamp shade tutorial
